Adorable! I have a similar color palette in my place. Yours is a thousand times cuter, though!

I adore it all! Such a fantastic mix of witty, upbeat items. The striped wall makes a great impact.

Compare the photos in this AT feature to those in the Chicago Home article:

The home appears so much warmer in CH's version. Just goes to show you how photography & editing can shape things!

Those of us who recognize every item in this home are clearly not MCM haters! Quite the opposite.

If the photos included some personal touches from the owners' collections, or few quirky (non-iconic) thrift shop finds, then this home would have been portrayed entirely differently.

But no kidding... In the photos shown, I can literally name (and price!) every single item. From the furniture to the lighting to the throw pillows to the house numbers. Maybe that's *my* issue... ;)

I do love the colors. Overall, it's a lovely home, filled with lovely stuff.

Peace.

I have to agree with madsarah on this one. I had the exact same thought when I reached the photo captions -- anyone on DWR's mailing list knows what each of these items is.

I like some of the art and LOVE the blooming tree out front, but I wish there were more individuality shown overall. There are some covet-worthy pieces here (I mean, I'd KILL for a womb chair!), but when everything, down to the throw pillows, is easily recognizable from DWR/Modernica/Velocity, the space feels more like an impersonal showroom than a couple's home.
